"We are his children. Let all who look upon us know this. Only by imperfection can we fail him. We will not fail!" - Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperor's Children
Originally there were 30 Great Companies of the Emperor's Children, though over the millenia many new Great companies have appeared, and some have even vanished. Because of this, and because the little data known the imperium have no idea how large or small each of the so called Traitor Legions are anymore. Since the heresy many of the old Lord Commanders have passed, and many new ones have risen in there place. What follows is the information that we have been able to obtain from scraps and rumours.
Glad I've finally found sonhetimg I agree with!
